    Ok so i need a breed of duck that is cold hardy, adaptable to confinement, are good egg layer, recognized by the APA, The females are easy to match colorwise, critically endangered, and are a good breed to show in 4-h. Do any breeds match my criteria?

    One of the bigger hatcheries has a page on their web site that compares breeds.
